    Dedicated areas on MaxContact™ MC6's tread design deliver high levels of performance from the tyre. These features cover all four directional forces that are applied to the tyre tread.

    • Stabiliser Bars

    Fix and stabilise the outside shoulder blocks and the longitudinal rib to form one stable unit, for enhanced handling and cornering grip. Depending on the dimension, there are about 50 stabiliser bars positioned around the tyre's circumference.

    • Asymmetric Rib Geometry

    The supporting angles of the rib-shoulders prevent slanting of the ribs under heavy cornering manoeuvres and sharp changes of steering direction, thus ensuring an enhanced cornering response.

    • Longitudinal Chamfered Edges

    Prevent the rolling-in-effect of the ribs in the lateral direction for maximum contact area to achieve enhanced cornering grip and stability.

    • Chevron Grip Elements

    Performance designed Chevron Grip Elements allow even pressure distribution during cornering even on the inside tyre of the vehicle resulting in enhanced grip, better wet braking and handling.

    • Stable Rib Structure

    To achieve faster dry braking and efficient traction for acceleration, these longitudinal ribs are engineered to avoid block distortion by transferring circumferential forces efficiently to the road.

    • Noise Breaker 2.0

    Breaks down the noise waves which flow through the grooves to ensure a comfortable low noise ride.

    MaxContact™ MC6 Features Diagram

    Delivers high levels of grip when needed most.

    The special adhesive polymers within the MaxContact™ MC6 compound are specifically designed to accomplish the extreme high grip requirements of the driver.

    Continental is a technology leader in compounding. For MC6 we took all levels of traction into account to reach maximum grip under all conditions.

    • Mechanical Interlocking

    Acts on a mm-scale (millimeter), assures primary contact to the road and interlocks the tread of the tyre to the road's surface on a mechanical level.

    • Hysteresis

    Acts on a µm-scale, generated by the deformation of visco-elastic materials on a micro level due to surface roughness or stick / slip movements of the tyre while driving.

    • Adhesion

    ​Acts on a nanometre-scale, superior adhesion to the road surface created by molecular forces - based on the 'Van-der-Waals-Forces" - which bonds the polymers to the road surface on a nanometre level.

    Tyre Traction Diagram

    Reduce tyre flexing to bring handling and high-speed stability to the next level.

    The stiffness of the Xtreme-Force ply material of MaxContact™ MC6 reduces tyre flexing during hard cornering and at high speed driving providing maximum control and better handling.

    At lower speeds or less sporty driving, less force are applied to the tyres. In such cases, the Xtreme-Force ply material is still flexible enough to ensure a comfortable ride in the comfort zone area, while a standard tyre would be not that flexible.

    In the sporty zone, the Xtreme-Forece ply material allows the MaxContact MC6 to be more rigid, which provides direct feedback to the driver. A conventional ply material would be flexing much more resulting in reduced feedback in cornering and steering at high speeds.
